    Is the stock 14-42 kit lens supposed to feel all "clicky" and stiff?

    I'm worried that I may have broken mine as I was attaching it for the first time- it popped open without me sliding the unlock button while I was twisting it onto the body.

    Zooming the lens is anything but smooth...

    It's not particularly smooth. The lens opens without sliding the unlock button; you only need to slide the unlock button to close it.

    Having said that, it is actually a nice lens, performance wise.

    Looking forward to shooting with it. Now if only the battery would hurry up charging!
